“A stich in time saves nine” is a saying that certainly counts for Sweet Itch in horses. The therapy can best be started before the mosquito season starts in stead of when the first mosquitoes appear; by than it’s often allready too late. Allthough the Cullicoides Robertii, the annoying little fly that is part of the cause of Sweet Itch, waits publically upon May/June to first strike in August, it is recommendable to start as early as February/March with preventive measurements. This reduces the symptoms that become visable in May/June and prevents a lot of itchy horse misary!

The best therapy
A horse with a strong immune system is less vulnerable to allergic reactions. Less allergic reaction automatically means less itching and thereby less desire to rub. Before starting with any medication or supplements, it is necessary to detoxificate the body first. The next action plan can be followed:

The Action Plan

  1. Detoxify with Drainage Compound to dispose of waste material so a ‘clean start’ can be made.
  2. Optimalize the function of the intestines with Probio Forte, favourable colonic bacteria.
  3. Daily administration of Trias Omega essential fatty acids to increase the condition of the fur and Puur Culico to reduce allergic reactions after musquito bites; especially of the Cullicoïdes robertii. Possibly combined with Puur Allergy.
  4. Optional addition of Wu Xing Metal herbs to the daily diet for a better condition of skin and fur.
  5. Spray the horse with Insect-free to repell musquitoes.
    When a horse still starts to show wounds and eczema, or when these were allready present before the start of the treatment:
  1. External treatment with Zinc & Sulphur paste.
  2. Internal treatment by daily administration of Fur Herbs with the food.
